Fausti Senator 20/70 – The Fausti of Marcheno has a proposal varied and differentiated in different types of rifles ranging from smooth barrels, to those ruled and by the overlapping of the doublets: it is precisely in this last sector the project company and the design capacities have been shown to be decidedly aggressive taking a field even been a thriving harvest of successes. In the past years, the rage of the semiauto had put in the shade the overlapped and almost made to disappear, the shotgun, the rifle has a more classic hunting, especially the one with the dog from a stop or followed. The archetype of the hunter with the “double” from the long strap thrown across the shoulders remained in the imagination of the hunting world, but confined there, in the memories much more than in practice. The sisters Fausti were the custodians of a long tradition of this rifle and, going against the tide, you are dedicated to the development and engineering of production in order to propose still more and more the shotgun-which gun all-rounder: all-rounder because in addition to believe you have worked on with passion and expertise to have the many variants ranging from the classic 12-gauge to the tiny .410 passing through the whole scale of the numbering of the English, to which is added the rifled barrels, even here, with an abundance of choice for the chambered, with particular attention to traditional cartridges in europe and the us to clamp. Returning to the mechanics of these shotguns, you can choose the most robust and functional battery derived from the Anson & Deeley, with its popular soft V, or carry out an important step, even from the economic point of view, and opt for that type Holland & Holland with acciarini on the side plates and double bar safety. At the completion of the refinement and class that is inherent in the design is accomplished is still a step special: you leave the gauges the average with all their prerogatives and sit on the preciousness of a small-caliber acting shakespirianamente debating not so much about to be or not to be but rather about the 28 or .410 Mg.? The old love for the 28 gained in the beginning in the hut, and explained years later in the hunting with a dog has got the better of them: we are not to put considerations ballistic that would bring us well beyond the space available and the patience of those who follow us, but we stop at an aesthetic consideration, stating, to our taste and pleasure, that the diameter of the pipe 28 is much more appropriate, elegant, and harmonious with its action by specific measures. What we say and that all of the .410 Mg., including the one that is in our rack, we forgive us for the affront.

The shotgun Senator

The name of extraction of a Latin in the House Fausti means double of the maximum level, and an overview with some new insights on the special highlights of the features: we start from the toggle switch where the miniaturization is to hire a garbo particular forms principiando from the breasts rocking compressed in the rear area and are highlighted by a thin, clear thread polished that drops down with a minimum face, a source of a fine chiaroscuro, which proves consequential to the profile projecting planes of the reeds. The line continues with the round arch in which it is housed in the recessed part of the front of the folder, extending then to the edges of the spine with fillets in good relief, and tape them side-by-side all smoothed out with care and without engravings so as to appreciate a work of high craftsmanship. Let’s go back to the head of the toggle switch where the indentation between the breasts to the rib concave and smooth placed it among the reeds, and, taking, venue, modeled tastefully on rounded lines for the disk key, the type with the pin separate, fixed by screw and issue; the body elongated and convex ends with the oval button, knurled and included in the carvings that enrich the elegantly set. Do not miss this end of refinement the codetta top where the profile two orders with the gentle curves of the fitting, the apex to the tip, and the insertion of the shoe in the safe with the key to relief.

Beautiful is the key, and the codetta upper tapered with the key of the safe

Rods, seals and closures

The correct machining of the external surface of the rods and, also, the internal gradients of connection designed to optimize the exploitation of the small office are certain factors to highlight, but still needs to be pointed out the junction system. They are now extremely rare, the reeds are assembled with the demibloc inclusive of the two halves of tenons: here it is hard to see the wire junction appreciating at the same time, the technical choice that the executive perfection of a work to be observed with respect. Profiles, see the semi-circle at the front for attachment to the rotating shaft and the two slots on the back surfaces for the insertion of the slide closure to move from the key. In the toggle switch you can see the mortise blind cut in the table and separated by the cross-bar: the friction surfaces are rightly marked as well as those of the lap zipper front, jut as soon as the teeth of the mounting of the acciarini and smaller ones of the batteries of ejectors housed in the testacroce.

The acciarini and the shots

The images complement the words in the description of the mechanism where the great masters of the past have explained their art: the type system Holland & Holland allows reports due to the intersection of the straight line between the pivot of the dog and the attachment point on the nut of the tooth of shot, and between this and the axis of the release lever (the famous 90°) to ensure a detachment of the net, quick, clean and light, without foot-dragging: the two surfaces contrast, in fact, move away between them, without friction. The angle between them is a guarantor of the security of the estate, increased by the double barline that intercept the dog if a collision were to lose the contrast with the shutter lever. Here we have a monogrillo mechanical, well modeled, with weights around 1400/1650 g: for the purists in the House, foresees the installation of a double trigger.

The Fausti has always placed a special eye to the choice of the woods, one of the factors that are the first to jump to the eye of the passionate and the customer: a nut of the correct seasoning taken from a mature plant show the vessels well-mineralized, and a surface area which has taken in an excellent way the polishing is passed from the different stages operating to reach the finishing oil that perfectly enhances the brown background of the average intensity enlivened by veins of brown, intense and eye-catching design. The lines are offered to the observer’s eye in all their classic, functional and elegant with the handle English from section rhomboidal and rod, full line of the best Italian masters.

To conclude

The price of this rifle is certainly not mild, but no object of beauty and of technical relevance can be: you have the figure and make sure a piece of archibugeria where the machines have reached a certain work, but the hands of the specialists have accomplished much more, it is a satisfaction that lasts over the years. Without considering, then, that the evolution of the times and the art of making, just make the rifles will always be more wealth of the few, the very few Masters.
